Fight Termites with the Sentricon System

From Dugas Pest Control Serving Southern Louisiana

Termites are, without question, some of the most destructive and costly insects we face in southern Louisiana – causing millions of dollars in damage each year.  So it should come as no surprise that there are so many products out on the market which claim to be “the best solution” when it comes to controlling termites.

Dugas Pest Control is an authorized provider of the Sentricon Colony Elimination System and serves all of southern Louisiana including Baton Rouge, New Orleans, St. Tammany & Lafayette.  And while we proudly offer two types of termite control systems – the Termidor liquid treatment system and the Sentricon Colony Eliminating System.  And while both are effective solutions, we believe that the Sentricon system has a few distinct advantages when it comes to battling termites.

2 Important Reasons to Choose Sentricon for Termite Control

Reason #1 – Sentricon is less invasive than liquid treatment systems

Using liquid treatment for termite colonies requires a trench to be dug around the foundation of the home or business where the liquid treatment can be applied.  Additionally, holes are usually required to be drilled into hard surfaces such as walkways, driveway and the foundation to ensure that the liquid is able to guard the entire structure.

On the inside of the home, we may need to remove the front of a tub or cabinets in order to apply chemicals to potentially damp areas that may attract termites.

By comparison, Sentricon has been proven to have the same effectiveness as liquid treatment but only requires that we discreetly set plastic stations around the home every 10 feet or so.  These baiting stations contain scientifically engineered bait which the worker termites will ingest as well as deliver back to the rest of the colony.  The bait in each station can be easily replaced when the time comes, which means that Sentricon is easier and less invasive than liquid treatments as you don’t have to drill holes to get the liquid on a particular spot.

Sentricon utilizes a patented “Always Active” baiting system which utilizes both their Recruit IV and Recruit HD products.  We monitor each bait station to ensure there is a constant supply of bait in the traps so that your property is continuously protected from termites.

Reason #2 – Sentricon is a “green” solution

The Sentricon System was developed to be a green product.  Liquid chemical treatments use many gallons of chemical solution which are poured into the ground around your home or business.  Instead, the Sentricon System wipes out entire termite colonies uses a baiting system which requires the use of only a few grams of strategically placed active ingredient. It’s the only termite product ever to receive the Presidential Green Chemistry Challenge Award.

A Special Note about “DIY” Pest Control

As easy as it might sound, the Sentricon termite elimination system is not a “do it yourself” project. Sentricon only distributes its products through highly trained and qualified companies such as Dugas Pest Control.

A pest control professional will install your baiting stations and then return to check the stations periodically for termite activity. This system is so simple and easy that you do not even need to be at home when we return to maintain your bait stations.
